Brando's personal copy of 20 pages from the script of the 1958 World War II drama The Young Lions, consisting of revisions to scenes 234 and 235 and dated September 9-10 and 12, 1957, with numerous handwritten notations by Brando in red and blue ink. A huge box-office success, it was the only movie that Brando and Montgomery Clift -- good friends and two of the most dynamic actors of the '50s -- ever made together, and was the key to Dean Martin's comeback after his split with partner Jerry Lewis. (Years later, Brando would substitute for the lead in Reflections in a Golden Eye after Clift's untimely death.) The pages are unbound and in Fine condition with binder holes punched in the left edge, and some moderate tanning and light chipping and tearing to roughly half of the pages. the handwriting is nevertheless clear and unaffected by age or wear. From the collection of Marlon Brando. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
